AMHERST - The Bridge Adult Service Centre organized events for the people with disabilities in our community recently.
The Bridge Adult Service Centre partnered with Canadian Association for Community Living and the Cumberland African Nova Scotia Association to put on two events.
"This is the first time CACL and CANSA have partnered to provide and event," CACL chairperson Evelyn Bradford said.
Bernice Vance, a partner with CANSA, contacted CACL and made plans to host events at the centre. The co-ordinator, April Dares, was hired by CANSA and CACL to be the organizer for the events.
Ed Cooke and Mike Blakney performed. They had heard about it when it was still in the planning stages and volunteered their time.
"It shows how willing people in the community are to show their talents and help out," Bradford said.
CACL and CANSA would like to have more events at the Bridge Adult Service Centre.
"That's our goal," Vance said.
"We greatly appreciate the opportunity to do that."
The events were from 10:30 a.m. to noon for the centre's self-esteem workshop and from 1:30 to 3 p.m. was the musical afternoon and- social time.
"People are certainly enjoying it and they're really participating," Bradford said. "The turnout was excellent."

    What a great way to celebrate the talents of local musicians! Ed and Mike should be commended for volunteering their time and music to the Bridge Workshop clients. Way To Go!!
